Sofía Daccarett Char aka Sofia Carson as she’s known professionally is a 28 years old American singer and actress of Colombian descent, mostly known for her roles in Disney Channel productions.
Her maternal family is Colombian, the Char family, are powerful politicians from Barranquilla, and one of the most influential “clans” in the city, owners of ‘Olímpica’ probably the most popular chain of supermarkets there.
And she keeps a really close relationship with her Latin roots, visiting Colombia and her family constantly. She even spent this New Year’s Eve in Barranquilla with the Char family.
She first debuted on TV as a guest star in Austin & Ally, the Disney Channel show starring Laura Marano and Ross Lynch, later being part of the ensemble cast of the TV movie Disney’s Descendants, starring Evie, the daughter of the Evil Queen, doing this role for three movies and being part of the soundtrack for the three as well.
She has done other movies and TV shows after that, but one of the most recent and loved ones is Ava in Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, being one of the main characters of the season, currently sitting with a 100% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes, and available to stream on HBO Max.
Even with her Disney Channel roles, Sofia has proven time and time again that’s she’s a great actress, no matter the script, and with her role as Ava she was able to showcase her abilities to make a deep character with a complicated back story with only one season, hopefully, we’ll be able to see her in a lot more serious roles in the future, either movies of TV shows, but she has the range to go all the way.
And not only as an actress, but Sofia Carson has also shown her musical talent multiple times outside of her Disney projects, with a lot of buzz singles over the years, like ‘Love Is The Name’, her first song, and ‘Back To Beaufitul’ with Alan Walker, that has over 30 million plays on Spotify, and finally after all these years of droplets, she has released her debut album.
‘Sofia Carson’, her homonymous project, she recently released a pop record consisting of 10 songs including one of them fully in Spanish, ‘Cómo, Cuándo y Dónde’ and the singles ‘LOUD’, ‘Fool’s Gold’ and ‘He Loves Me, But…’ all of them following the same Dream Pop genre, that she knows how to do really well, the album is really consistent through and through, with some great songs made especially to dance and vibe with.
Great lyrics, great production, and a great voice, she has it all, so we cannot wait to see what the future has prepared for her in the entertainment business, and let’s hope that her promoters do the right thing and bet on her talent even more.
